Question about Garden

2 Answers

My otherwise very good and fairy new Craftsman drill press has almost stopped working. While the motor is running and top pulley is turning, the chuck with drill bit will stop when it meets resistance. I checked if the pulley is loose, but it isn't. The belt is tight. I cannot see how I can take the assemly apart. Help me, please! This is an essential piece of equipment! Wytse Eldersloo, Netherlands

    Chuck is fine, bit is tight, but spindle that holds the chuck is no longer firmly attached to pulley at the top and the two can rotate independently.

    I have limited the problem to the chuck. The tapered end of the chuck is friction fitted in the spindle. This is OK, but the body of the chuck is now turning loosely on the tapered end, which it shouldn't. So I need to unfix the chuck from the spindle to check what is wrong with it or replace it. Any idea how to do that? I ried tapping it with a piece of wood (don't want t do damage!). Chuck = RJ-33-13L Thanks, Wytse Sikkema

Hi,
If you can find the model number of your drill press then I or you can go to www.ereplacementparts.com and find the parts that are broken or missing.

    Hi,
    To remove that it will take giving the check a very hard rap with a piece of wood long wise to the grain....
    You will probably have to give the chuck a whack and then turn it a bit and then keep whacking it to get it to release...

    they do not come out easy!!

Hammer drill wont drive


It sounds like the gear inside sheared the teeth. You can check with Craftsman to see if you can get a replacement gear.

Drill will not rotate


Did you have to set the chuck into the spindle, or when you got the press, was the chuck already attached to the spindle? With the drill press I got (different brand), I had to set the chuck in the spindle and I put pressure on the chuck to set it in by placing a bit in the chuck and drilling in a piece of wood, which placed pressure on the chuck. If that's not the issue, check to see that the pulleys are turning ( flip the top open). Also check the tension of the pulleys (machine OFF) If there is nothing apparent or obviuosly not working, and if the press is new, yes, I would return it.

I have a NordicTrack c2200. I find that the tread belt is not running smoothly while running on it. As I run, the belt temporarily stops during each running step, causing me to trip up. I tried to lube,...


There are a couple possibilities.
Remove the motor cover and run the machine.
Check the tension of the motor belt. It may need to be tightened. 2manyhobbies.jpg
Check that the pulley has not broken free from the front roller by stopping the walking belt when the machine is running. If the belt stops, but the motor and pulley keep turning, the pulley has broken free from the front roller.
If this is the case, with a drill and small drill bit, drill a hole through the pulley and roller on the inside edge of the pulley, between the ribs (not where the motor belt travels) and put a screw through the plastic into the metal roller.
Otherwise, change the roller.
Good Luck.

The chuck on my craftsman 8" drill press wobbles. How can I stop it from wobbling?? Can I get a manual for my drill. thanks. billybee3@yahoo.com


There are a couple of different ways that drill chucks are attached on smaller tools. You didn't specify the model, so I can't help much. But here is a link to where you can usually find manuals for Craftsman. If the press is not too old, you will probably be able to find the manual here.

My 1/2 inch drive air drill stopped working i have model number 19912.motor is running but chack is not turning


MOst likely the planetary gears in the head og the drill. There is a small pinion gear which drives the larger gear to make the chuck turn.

Craftsman 10" bench drill press chuck wobbles


If this is a new tool I would take it back and get it replaced. The only other way to eliminate this problem is to determine if it is the spindle or the chuck and replace the defective unit. Warranty works better.

Remove and replace the chuck


Most drill press chucks are held on with a screw. Open the chuck all the way. Look inside the chuck, there should be a screw in the bottom. Some are left hand threads, some are not. Good Luck

The motor is working but the chuck head is not turning properly - it turns and then when you put pressure on it it stops. I have 3 makita drills and this is happening with all of them


First, check the lever on the top of the drill (high/ low lever speed) and make sure it is engaged in one of the positions. If it is in the middle it will cause your drill to stop. Otherwise, the gear box is gone and will need to replaced. The part # you need is #125-429-0 and it runs about $59.20.
Good luck
